Joey's Toes

Exhibit A, shown above, is a photo of Joey's toes.

Consider now Exhibit B, an outline of Joey's foot compared to an average-sized foot. The blue line sits at the base of both Joey's and the stranger's big toe for better height comparison. (I stole this pic from the Internet. NOTE: If you ever want to make yourself sick, Google images for "toes").

If you've seen Joey's feet (and toes) in person you don't need this illustration to know that she has very short toes and small feet.

There are undoubtedly a few positives to Joey's toe/foot size:

1. When she puts on flip-flops, they just stick on her feet in between those toes of hers. It requires no toe muscle coordination to keep her flip-flops on.

2. She can buy girls' shoes, which are much cheaper than women's sizes. You may have seen some cute child-sized shoes in this blog that she recently purchased.

3. She saves a lot of money on toenail polish. Refer to Exhibit A for toenail size.

Although I think Joey's foot size is not without challenges:
1. She has in fact been mistaken for a little person before.

2. Toe rings are out of the question.

3. There is a slight hoof effect when she wears certain types of shoes.
That's all I've got.

I'd like to say something in behalf of the photograph of my own feet.... They do not generally look like they are the feet of a cadaver. The lighting and quality of the camera greatly scewed the reality of my foot. Although Wendy's assumptions may be accurate, the pictures are not representative of my day-to-day foot.

LOL! I'm loving it. I am cursed with some of the ugliest feet I've ever seen. It's pitiful! I wish I could fit in kids shoes. That'd be sweet!! :)

I'm jealous you can buy cheap shoes. I'd go crazy with shoes if I could get them cheap all the time.

Oh my gosh, I haven't read your blog in months and I have been giggling so hard that Mike thinks I am doing drugs over at the desk. So funny.
